"A hilarious read when you're feelin' down and hungry." Daily Candy
Life's little pitfalls can be a real drag: being dumped, fired, or left at the altar they're all such downers. Sure, some might just grin and bear it, but why?
Hilarious author Heather Whaley advises readers to revel in their misery, offering a slew of side-splittingly skewed recipes, each perfect for a different, wretched moment, including:
Lonely Christmas pudding
Caught Mom and Dad in the Act Tater Tot Casserole
Your brother Really Was Mom's favorite peach pie
fannie Mae and freddie Mac 'N' Cheese
breakfast Sandwich for Morning-After Regret
In the wonderfully perverse tradition of Amy Sedaris's bestselling I Like You, Eat Your Feelings makes the perfect gift, reminding us that food and booze unlike fair weather friends or your 401K will never let you down.
